The newest trailer for the Paul Rudd-starrer "Ant-Man" has been released and it features more breathtaking sequences, an improvement from the superhero film's first teaser.

Check out the brand new trailer below which Marvel Entertainment debuted on Youtube.

Filled with special effects featuring CGI armies of ants, the sneak peek also showcases Ant-Man's enemy, Corey Stoll's Darren Cross a.k.a. Yellowjacket, in his own high-tech suit while battling it out with the movie's titular character. As an added bonus, the teaser also guarantees that "Ant-Man" will be filled with comedic moments between Paul Rudd and his co-stars Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas.

As Screenrant pointed out, based on the flick's trailer, Ant-Man's suit is also capable of controlling and organizing large armies of ants. Furthermore, it was implied in the teaser that Ant-Man's astonishing shrinking capabilities, among other things, make him a unique superhero and puts him in an advantage over his enemies.

Ant-Man, a founding member of Marvel's The Avengers, started out as the master thief Scott Lang. Equipped with the ability "to shrink in scale but increase in strength," he has to work with his mentor, Douglas' Dr. Hank Pym, to protect the secret behind the astounding suit from opportunistic threats, Screenrant noted.

The film, slated for release on July 17, 2015, is directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, the news outlet wrote. "Ant-Man" also stars Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip "Ti" Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, and Jordi Mollà as Castillo.

'Ant-Man's' Huge Ties with MCU

Speaking to SlashFilm about the upcoming movie, Feige revealed that the superhero film's odd placement between the phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn't an "after thought." According to the producer, "Ant-Man" connects "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Captain America: Civil War" with each other.

"It's not [an after thought]. The truth is the phases mean a lot to me and some people but... 'Civil War' is the start of Phase Three. It just is. And 'Ant-Man' is a different kind of culmination of Phase Two because it very much is in the MCU," Feige told Slashfilm.

He continued, "You meet new characters and you learn about Hank Pym and his lineage with the MCU over the years. But at the same time, it also picks up the thread of 'Age of Ultron' in terms of heroes - major heroes, Avengers - coming from unexpected places. And in that way it connects a lot."

Discussing how "Ant-Man" was filmed, Stoll revealed that the production team had about 45 days of shooting using macro photography. The whole unit shot a shrunk Ant-Man interacting with the world by using "this crazy, next-level technology that enables you to film things at an incredibly small level without the distortion of a very wide lens," Entertainment Weekly reported.
